't that be interesting if in fact, simon, we rally past the fiscal cliff. we get a deal that somehow buys a new market, and then get into early next year and realize that the economy was weakening on its own. of course, we are going to get at least some gdp hit already, because we're probably still unlikely to see an extension of the payroll tax relief. so that would be really funny if after all of this, the correct position was to have bought stocks and held them through the second half, and to sell into a rally after a very weak fiscal cliff deal. >> the health care, let's remember, the health care is on the way whether we like them or not. people will be paying more come january the 1st, chuck. >> there's no question about it, simon. but again, there's still -- we can't lose sight of the fact that this is delicate, this last bit of negotiation. if what andy is talking about to happen, a grand bargain, it's very delicate to put that together in a way that doesn't disappoint liberals too much in the house or conservatives too much in the house, we could still have a t.a.r.p. moment there. i think and
